Unfold the night like scripts we've left undone
but rewrite as we linger.
You draft a line about your last end-run,
Deleting scenes all the while

The night is distant with the porch light on
the cycle hum is growing quicker
i want to see you when you come undone
as you laugh, that you've known, all the while

I've been lucky all along
always getting what i want
you're an ocean
I am hoping
to be sinking like a stone

I want to see you as the air grows warm
no feelings hid,
breathing quicker
I want to lay here till the rising sun
as we sink into the night

i want to script our part and when i'm done
watch the film, as it flickers
i want to see you with your porchlight on
as you laugh, that you've known all the while.

I've been lucky for so long
always getting what i want
you're an ocean
and i am hoping
to be sinking like a stone
